Letter to Interpol for Extradition of Thaksin Shinawatra for his Terrorism Acts sign now

The Thai Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Thaksin on terrorism charges for allegedly involving in the red protests in Bangkok that left 88 people dead and 2,000 injured. I am writing to kindly urge you to cooperate with Thailand authority in extraditing Thaksin back to Thailand on ground of terrorism acts.

The Internaitonal Humanitarian Law specifically prohibits "measures of terrorism" and "acts of terrorism". The Fourth Geneva Convention (Article 33) states that "Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited", while Additional Protocol II (Article 4) prohibits "acts of terrorism" against persons not or no longer taking part in hostilities. The main aim is to emphasise that neither individuals, nor the civilian population may be subject to collective punishments, which, among other things, obviously induce a state of terror. Both Additional Protocols to the Geneva Conventions also prohibit acts aimed at spreading terror among the civilian population. "The civilian population as such, as well as individual civilians, shall not be the object of attack. Acts or threats of violence the primary purpose of which is to spread terror among the civilian population are prohibited" (AP I, Article 51(2) and AP II, Article 13(2)). IHL also prescribes the following acts, which could be considered as terrorist attacks:

1) attacks on civilians and civilian objects (Arts. 51, para. 2, and 52, Protocol I; and Art. 13, Protocol II); indiscriminate attacks (Art. 51, para. 4, Protocol I);
2) attacks on works and installations containing dangerous forces (Art. 56, Protocol I; and Art. 15, Protocol II);
3) the taking of hostages (Art. 75, Protocol I; Art. 3 common to the four Conventions; and Art. 4, para. 2b, Protocol II);
4) murder of persons not or no longer taking part in hostilities (Art. 75, Protocol I; Art. 3 common to the four Conventions; and Art. 4, para. 2a, Protocol II).

I hereby sample some of many Thaksin-funded/led Red Shirt (also known as UDD)s activities considered as terrorism acts based on The International Humanitarian Law as above-mentioned. The following events are listed by a chronological order, provided with evidence from a variety of independent sources available to public, and numbered in brackets in accordance to the International Humanitarian Law it breaches.
